So it turns out that Glass, like L’arc, is also a hero from other world. Naofumi barely fights off their combo attacks and then corners Glass in a one-on-one battle, but is then faced with an all-important question: does he truly wish to protect this world?
Melromarc brings a large fleet to fight the Wave out at sea. While the queen takes charge and leads the operation well, the other three heroes prove useless yet again, leaving Naofumi to do it all alone. The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 24 – Guardians of Another World reveals something that might change the course of how we view this weird world and the waves.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 23 – Cal Mira Archipelago starts off on the ship to Cal Mira, in which Naofumi once again runs into L’arc, the adventurer that he ran into from the previous episode.
After being unable to for so long, Naofumi finally gets to upgrade his party’s classes in The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 22. Despite Rapthalia and Filo upgrading, they couldn’t choose the upgrade that they wanted thanks to Filo’s crown. He then takes part in a meeting of the Four Cardinal Heroes, held under the guise of a celebratory banquet, which actually revealed a lot about their abilities.
So shit hit the fan in The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 20. Last review I specifically mentioned how I wanted to see what the Queen was capable of doing, and now it looks like we may get to see that very soon.
Well, it looks like the Pope is no mere push over in The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 19 – The Four Cardinal Heroes. The Pope holds in his hands the ultimate weapon, which possesses the properties of all four cardinal weapons. And here I thought it was the Excalibur.
OK, now that’s a twist I did not expect. Things in The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 18 – A Conspiracy Linked just got real interesting.
OK, let me get this straight. So a powerful queen threatens to kill you and the other heroes last night but the next day you decide to have a casual breakfast like that event never happened? Like the threat never happened and they wasn’t gonna pull up on you? Yeah, Naofumi was wild for that one! Anyways, The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 17 – A Promise Made focuses on Filo’s resolve to get stronger and a past promise.
As The Rising of the Shield Hero Episode 16 starts of with Naofumi squaring off with a t-rex, we learn that there’s a young angel like person called Fitoria looking for the next queen of the Chocobo’s aka the filolials.
